a deal on raising the debt ceiling by this summer is an impetus i think could yield some type of an agreement over the next couple of months or so. >> you know what? bygo. you are right. can you have a raising or adjusting of the debt limit without a budget? it can't happen, right? >> well, it can happen. but there has to be agreement on the parameters of a deal. the president said he is not negotiating over the debt ceiling. but in a way he is. whether you have two separate deals one on cutting the budget and one raising the debt ceiling, republicans won't raids the debt ceiling without anything in return. the president knows that. the fact they're talking and that didn't happen before, and maybe partisanship is coming back. there is more bipartisan than last year. >> eric: let me add this. >> jamie: republicans may get something they don't want, the higher taxes. again. >> right. >> jamie: is that a deal-breaker? how do they come together on that? >> the republicans, they would raise some taxes. they say if you are going to use the revenue to lower other taxes. another discu
've seen it through the debt ceiling where president obama is moving in their direction and it's still never enough. it's never going to be enough. interestingly here to beth's point, you have a potential strategy here where president obama is demonstrating yet again another object lesson that the republicans are intransigent, not willing to do anything he propose's -- cenk: i got to ask you though, you're all right beth's right joe's right, he's proving over and over republicans are intransigent, but then gives republicans when they wanted and gives it to them again and again. where's the brilliant strategy on policy? isn't he getting his ass kicked? start with joe and move on down. >> it depends on how big a picture you're looking at. certainly in 2012 when we talked about the negotiations over the debt ceiling. what president obama got was an extension of unemployment benefits an extension of the painful tax holiday. cenk: whoop-to-doo! >> for someone at the end of the level, that four or five weeks made a big difference. it also mattered in the fact that it did not detrimentally af
, that's right. and if you look at the other big bills that have been passed, the debt ceiling extension, sandy relief or violence against women act, it was about 25% to 40% of the republican caucus and then overwhelming number of democrats who passed those pieces of legislation. so it will be no different if gun reform passes, and immigration reform passes. >> you make a good point, alex. it's very similar to the debt negotiations for the grard bargain. if we're going to pass this, we need huge democratic marge orts, and that means our folks have to man up and woman up and accept a few things that aren't exactly like they want them, too. that's going to be the case on the debt deal and it will be the case on immigration deal. >> but congressman let me ask you, a huge part of this is because the republican party knows that you've ameliorated the image among latinos and hispanic, understanding they're notç monolithic voting blocs. when you have this sort of cross-debate between mod rats in the party, much more broad-minded in terms of their semantic and their actual legislation they're
lawmakers will square off on whether to raise the debt ceiling. at the recent clinton global initiative, the president recognized students from the university of virginia who won the top prize for their efforts in educating peers about the debt. >> i'm grateful for the passion many students has shown for this issue. they are creative in the competition. they made youtube videos and held social media contests. >> let's bring in team leader one of the five students who spearheaded the projects. good morning. congratulations. >> thank you, chris. >> so you won the top prize. you got to meet with president clinton. not bad. tell us about your project. >> sounds great. so the campaign was focused on getting students involved in the conversation and making sure that they're active in the learning process before we graduate and before we become representatives in any way or become leaders in our respective fields. our campaign focused on 31 initiatives that got students united with their community members and their representatives. we hosted senator mark warner to connect our representatives w
to have another crisis, a debt ceiling crisis, because if the president thinks the republicans are going to go along with this, if they are going to go along with other sorts of tax increases, big tax increases for minor entitlement cuts, that's not going to happen. i mean, as we were saying before, it's the sequester, the spending austerity, the right kind of austerity, that is helping this economy right now. balanced off by the fed. we're not going to get rid that have and replace it with tax hikes. >> dave drucker, the gop wants to win in 2014, i get that, but if the gop becomes democrats, i don't think they are going to win in 2014. >> well, larry, i think everybody should disabuse themselves of the fact that the republicans are going to sign on to the obama budget in any form as it's presented today, and that they are going to support tax increases of any kind, and if the president thinks that the fiscal cliff deal is a way forward for him to cut more deal with the republicans he's going to be disappointed. not only is it bad for them politically, they simply don't believe in it and
for the first time during the debt ceiling deal and you know, we were in a very polarized state of mind then. it was a very tough situation and gabby's presence melted a lot of frozen hearts on the house floor. and given that we've had someone so close to us affected directly by gun violence, hopefully you know, if there's anybody that can impact a frozen republican heart, gabby can. iç think also, it's important note, chris, that tomorrow we will dedicate the zimmerman room in honor of gabby's staffer who was the first staffer killed in the line of duty who was killed during the tucson shooting and we'll dedicate that room in the capital visitors' center tomorrow. >> we have seen, some of the newtown victims' families, obviously having an effect, 16 republicans crossing over cloture to start the debate. the emotional appeal on this issue at least right now is paying political dividends. >> it's just common sense. >> yes, ma'am. >> this is beyond emotion, it's common-sense. >> okay, i want to switch to immigration. a topic important to you as a congresswoman from florida. i want to ask you
on entitlements and we have the debt ceiling which we run up against in july again, and all of that is a recipe for a deal and if there is no deal and i am wrong and it doesn't happen, we are in for troubled times. >> the economy is getting worse for ordinary people. >> i don't think you can look at this, what washington doesn't care about is what is happening to the average american, what they are care about. we are told the storm is great because the fed is printing money like crazy. and to build up assets for banks but no one will stand up. what we have is a set of policemen dynamics which are relevant to so many americans. >>gregg: the taxes are kicking in, employers are dropping their obama health care or they are switching to higher workers' contribution and people with their own coverage are paying higher premiums. >> it is already beginning. you can see the unintended consequences. >> contributing to the decline in the president's levels? >> it is only going. for four years, when any us, anyone watching, goes to the drugstore and cannot get something or the price is higher or a doctor i
or not there is going to be a bucket deal probably in two months a lot of the debt ceiling. >> beep on guns. bi-partisan on immigration. maybe we can get to where we have bip beep on the bucket. in connection cook good to have you with us. follow her at national journal.com and i will be back and tell you what the president is up to today. >> this is "the bill press show." can become major victories. i'm phil mickelson, pro golfer. when i was diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis my rheumatologist prescribed enbrel for my pain and stiffness, and to help stop joint damage. [ male announcer ] enbrel may lower your ability to fight infections. serious, sometimes fatal events including infections tuberculosis lymphoma, other cancers, nervous system and blood disorders, and allergic reactions have occurred. before starting enbrel your doctor should test you for tuberculosis and discuss whether you've been to a region where certain fungal infections are common. you should not start enbrel if you have an infection like the flu. tell your doctor
, the debt ceiling is something that is necessary for the operations of government. we will bring a bill forward that will ensure that we do not go into default, but i do think that we should be mindful of how we are going to tell the public we are going to go into the future and pay off these debts. the gentleman has many children and grandchildren. he does not want his kids, nor do i want mine to be shouldering the debt and paying our bills. really committing ourselves not to just borrowing more, not to just taking more from taxpayer dollars, because we have done a lot of that this year already. the gentleman talks about the need to proceed with revenues. we already have close to $650 billion of additional static revenues, taxes that are accounted for because of the fiscal clef deal. it is not that there are no revenues in the mix here. i look forward to working with the gentleman. i appreciate his commitment to longevity in the country, sustaining economic growth or restarting its the we can -- restarting its so that we can sustain it. i yield back. toi think finding a way invest in t
